First off.. I just have to say..’I so appreciate my blogging peeps..thanks for being out there in blogville…. I don’t thank each and every follower as they join along so this is my thank you to all of you who have persevered through the growing process of Bigdawg and Freeway.
There are days when it seems like we are just ‘floggin’ a dead horse’..and then I post an entry and you all show up!!..thanks for being there!..you are all a bright spot on a dark day!!!
Now onto our Saturday… Girl’s day out…
Carlie and I are off to the Westcoast Christmas Show at the Tradex in Abbotsford.
This is the fourth annual Christmas show but will be our first time attending….
I know I sure could do with some help in the Christmas spirit department so I am hoping this will help.
The Tradex is filled with everything Christmas..from festive trees and music, food, decorations and gift ideas.
Did this trip east on Highway 1 do anything to improve my Christmas spirit?..I was very hopeful..
We entered the Tradex and there was a display of poinsettias…now this is a good start..
there were Christmas Carollers…trying ‘really hard ‘ to sing!!…
and there was the display of Christmas trees…this was looking good!!…festive holiday spirit here we come..
We wandered through the displays…there was some seasonal Christmas items but it was more of the usual steamers…jewellery…flax seed…jams and jellies…it reminded us both of the PNE..and all the ‘stuff’ that is sold there…no purchases were made…
needless to say we were out of there after 40 minutes…
wallet was $14 lighter…and parking was free…onwards to lunch…Christmas spirit improved?..not!!
Olive garden and the famous salad was on the agenda!…
We then wandered through the shops in Langley…Bowring's, Bombay company and Michaels..just to name a few….now at least these stores were all decked out in their Christmas finery!!!
A lovely day spent with my darling daughter is never wasted..
Doug and I a spent the evening at the Keg Restaurant in Burnaby with our friends Steve and Melanie.
Wine..conversation and a great meal rounded out our Saturday..
the weekend is half over already!..where does the time go??
